Man, it keeps getting worse around here...

In posts here and there I've mentioned that my wife and I planned on moving out of our condo within the next couple of years. That time may be getting closer and closer with all of the problems we've had with this place in the past 2.5 years. Within the first year of purchasing our place, we find that the complex has an issue with the building continuing to "settle" after being built 30 years ago. Then we had issues with our neighbors above us where water was coming through our ceiling.

Recently we had issues with our new neighbors across the way drilling holes in our pipes when trying to install a medicine cabinet! Now we have issues were the patio above our patio isn't functioning properly, and it's funneling water into our patio door and possibly our wall! We're thinking about starting to put a plan together shortly after the baby is born around 6 months from now. Hopefully by the time the place is sold we'll be financially ready to take on a house. In the mean time, we'll have to relax and exercise our patients...

That sounds pretty awful! Did your neighbors replace your pipes?

Yes he did. But unfortunately we had to deal w/ no cold water for half of the day. That also meant no toilet functionality either!

I would have thought the person/agent who sold you the place had to disclose know defects.
